The Official Haku Discussion Thread

I am reading the manga and am up to Haku's death on the bridge. Haku is a boy? He looks like a girl. nothing wrong with cute boys. just wondering why Kishimoto dosen't refer Haku as her instead of he? Why not make Haku a girl? Does he tell us why? Maybe in an interview?

Maybe you should use the search button ... and they made it quite obvious that Haku is a boy ... I am amazed every time people post this thread. Were you even paying attention when you were watching the anime?

Does that really bother you. And to answer your question, yes he is a guy. Due to his facial outlook.

Chill, it's just a question.

The answer is of course that Haku is a pretty boy. For the ladies if you get my drift.

I think that making Haku a girl would be a lot more interesting but then again that would mean that Sasuke and Naruto would be up against a girl.. a very powerful girl. That might effect the way they fight against Haku. I mean most guys don't fight girls..... right?
oh yes, nothing wrong with pretty boys! *wink*wink*

Good question. Haku is actually a girl. A girl that has a penis and no breasts.




j/k. My guess on why Kishimoto made Haku look like a girl is to display his innocence not to mention it's easier to pity someone that looks cute/pretty over a rugged, bastard looking guy.

I see with Dragon Flame's absense Lex has taken the flame of "hazing" new people. It's a fun job and someone's gotta do it .

Well, to be honest. I thought that he was a girl at first. But when it comes down to it, there's a lot of similar characters that guys look like girls and vice versa (very strange indeed ).

The pretty boy type of guy is a lot more popular in Japan than it is America. For example, Raiden from Metal Gear Solid 2 was very popular in Japan. However, in America, a lot of tweenage boys with identity issues reacted with the following... "OMG! LEIK RIDAN SI A FAGOOT! LOLOOLLO!!!"

Stupidity knows no bounds I guess. It pisses me off too, I liked Raiden. He was the Luke Skywalker to Solid Snake's Han.

Anyway, rant over.

He didn't have any cleavage and his colar round his neck was hiding a very small adams apple, plus a missing nin really can't be walking around gathering herbs in the forest while dressed as a missing nin.

If I'm not mistaken, if you are reading Shonen Jump they are still in the Haku arc on the bridge, thus the timing of the question, perhaps.

Plus I think it shows his innocents (sorry can't spell) And it appears to be a regular thin in shonen manga.

Oh, not at all. Cuz at first Naruto thought that he was a girl, and he said that as a girl that she's more sexier than Sakura-chan But nice try though

There is a couple of threads I won't ever tolerate. Is Haku a girl? Is Yashamaru a girl? These things aren't even tiny details you might miss ... There is like a whole episode where you get to figure out the gender.

Naruto said Prettier in the subbed version I saw

Kaku has a very pretty face, but no boobs, even Sakura has little lumps.

Although, I guess I'm just a Narutard and don't know anything much.

I wouldn't say that, because seeing that you have seen a series of episodes in the past. You would be able to know what's been going on

probably because this question is asked every month?

use the search button it's your friend.

Bottom line is that Kaku being in a dress is very common and not a big deal in Shonen Manga.

It's actually that simple.

If we all grew up in Japan and watched anime we would all know this.
